Chantelle Cseh, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP

Chantelle Cseh, a partner in the Litigation practice at Davies, identified and continues to take action to address an issue that has made a significant impact on her firm, Ontario courts and the legal community more broadly: digitizing courtrooms and the legal practice in a way that is accessible to, and user-friendly for, parties, lawyers and judges. While no one reasonably disputes that technology can reduce the costs of litigation and cause proceedings to be more efficient, counsel and the courts in Ontario have been slow to adopt the technologies available to them. Cseh recognized this shortcoming and decided to use tablets as a ‘gateway’ to paperless litigation and, more generally, a paperless legal practice for all types of practitioners.
